Driverless Car Steers Humans to a Safer Roads

At first glance, Carnegie Mellon University’s Cadillac SUV looks like any other car on the road. But unlike other cars, this one drives itself. According to Professor Raj Rajkumar and his team at the university – the Cadillac prototype is the most advanced example of driverless car technology yet produced.
The research engineering team has been working on the autonomous car since 2000 with more than $11 million of finding from both the National Science Foundation and General Motors.
Rajkumar says driverless cars will one day be the norm, replacing the single biggest cause of traffic accidents on the road – human drivers. Human error accounts for more than 1.3 million traffic deaths globally every year and costs hundreds of billions of dollars.
